The Eatwell
The Eatwell shows the balance and variety of different foods that make a healthy,
balanced diet.
It is made up of five different food groups.
Fruit and vegetables
* We should all eat at least 5 portions of fruit and
vegetables every day.
* A portion of roughly what fits into the palm of
your hand, or a glass of juice.
* All fruits and vegetables count, except potatoes.
* Fresh, canned, dried, frozen and juiced fruit and
vegetables all count.
* Fruit and veg give us plenty of fibre for a healthy
gut an lots of vitamin C to fight infection.
Bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and other
starchy foods
• This group includes:
• different types of bread, rice, pasta
and noodles;
• potatoes, yam and plantain;
• breakfast cereals.
• Eat more from this group.. About 4 portion
each day – try to include something from this
food group at each meal.
• Choose wholemeal and wholegrain varieties.
• This group is needed for energy and to keep
the gut healthy (if we eat wholemeal versions!!)
Milk and dairy foods
• This group includes: milk, cheese and yogurt.
• This food group is an important for healthy bones
and teeth.
• We need to eat 2-3 foods from this group a day
e.g. a glass of milk, a pot of yogurt or a matchbox
size piece of cheese.
• Go for lower fat versions, e.g. semi-skimmed milk,
low fat yogurt or reduced fat cheese.
Meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy
sources of protein
• This group includes:
- meat, e.g. beef, chicken or lamb;
- fish, e.g. tuna, salmon or cod;
- alternatives, e.g. eggs, nuts, beans and lentils.
• This group is needed for growth, development and repair,
and to stay healthy.
• Visible fat and skin should be trimmed from meat and
poultry before you cook or eat it.
• Bake, steam, grill or microwave rather than frying as
these are healthier ways to cook food.
•We only need 2 portions of this each day. We should all
eat at least two portions of fish a week - one portion
should be from an oily fish, e.g. salmon, mackerel or
Foods and drinks high in fat and/or sugar
• This group contains:
• foods containing fat, e.g. pastry,
margarine, oil.
• foods containing sugar, e.g. jam,
biscuits, sweets.
• Foods from this group should be eaten in small
• If you have food and drinks containing sugar, have
them as part of your meals, rather than between meals.
This will help to protect your teeth from dental decay.
